6/30 Backing each other up

Koyie Hill was back behind the plate Wednesday for the second straight game, the third time this season he’s started consecutive games.

“I’ve said before, it’s no secret I enjoy playing,” Hill said. “But I also enjoy watching [Geovany Soto] play, too. He’s a great talent. I even voted for him for the All-Star Game [on the players’ ballots], so I have no problem caddying for him.”

Did Soto vote for Hill?

“No — he didn’t want his voting rights to be revoked,” Hill said, laughing.

Soto has started 54 of the Cubs’ games, while Wednesday was Hill’s 24th start behind the plate.
